Tag Archives: Too Tired

With Apologies, etc.

Hi friends! So … you might’ve noticed lately I’ve been not as great with posting things. I don’t even know for how long, but for a while now we’ve had the lovely and wonderful Sadie helping out with formatting and scheduling, which has been wonderful. (Side note, is there such a thing as green/purple color blindness?)

I’m something of a >.> control freak though, so I do the actual scheduling. And have had some oops.

I’ve tried really hard I think the past year+ but … just to address the all encompassing *waves hand vaguely* but also that we might be on hiatus, and/or I’ll be back dating posts (like this one!), which is the “apologies” part – to the wonderful review crew, and guest authors.

It’s also a bit of a “sorry not sorry.” In that … I really am truly sorry when posts don’t go up as scheduled. I really do try with A Little Bit Tart, A Little Bit Sweet, and I want to keep trucking on. Especially considering the hundreds of dollars (literally) I’ve sunk into this site.

… The “not sorry” part is though … there have been times I couldn’t (or can’t) walk, or times when I’ve literally lost my words. So … sorry (not sorry!) to the authors etc who can’t understand me not being able to talk or have words to me personally, outweighs the importance of their post or edits going up in a “timely manner.”

And sure, some people don’t know about all that shit I’m dealing with behind the scenes. And they don’t have to. But things are what they are. And I just wanted to explain to all of you … there’s just all this shit going on.

So – as it says – my apologies. Thank you for sticking with me. <3 Hopefully this too shall pass with good resolutions and such … and as before and always, I’ll keep on keeping on to the best of my ability. [And also sorry I’m just too tired etc to even find a picture to pretty this post up.]

Much love to you all. <3

I Know. Winners. Finally.

A sleep deprived Lime is a tardy Lime. Something to do with not going to bed until 5, 6, or even 7 AM does that. Especially since the rest of the world refuses to pause, or even accomodate my sleep schedule. Or lack thereof. Which is so very inconsiderate, and yet how the world works. Le sigh.

There are things I want to talk about. Like all the crazy plagiarism stuff going on in Bloglandia. (Prominent YA blogger plagiarized but handled it incredibly badly, dust ups and dramallama galore.) Then more of the same with reviews and backlash and my view is the only view despite me being so very openminded and loving everyone and everything.

I think we’ve made it clear I’m not one of those people who believes that “if you don’t have anything nice to say you shouldn’t say anything at all.” Of course sometimes that fits, but others… no. If there’s something out there that needs to be addressed, even if it’s difficult, or possibly ugly, it needs to be talked about. My little soap box moment.

But I know why you’re all here. You want to know who won what?! And I’m going to tell you. Well, who won. You (if you won) need to tell me what you get. (And huh – I didn’t do too badly… only 9 posts, and I did say nobody/nothing would be going up on the 14th…) I hope y’all made your proper offerings to the randomizer.org gods. 😉
